    With a noteworthy career spanning over a decade, New-York based artist Daniel Arsham has established a name for himself that exceeds any niche or discipline, touching each end of the art world spectrum. In thought-provoking and eye-catching work, Arsham has masterminded a multidisciplinary practice that exists in between art, architecture, and performance. Unpacking the world we live in through a range of mediums, the one thread that ties his work together is that of inevitably - that objects in the present reflect ideas from the past, and are destined to be transformed by the future. Renown for creating ‘future relics’ in his practice, Arsham also explores dichotomies between reality and fiction, as well as destruction and creation.

    Executed of glass, sand, and a cast miniature camera and quartz crystal, the editioned present lot, exists both as an artwork as well as a working time-keeping device. As you turn Hourglass, one object is revealed while the other is covered in blue sand. With a run-time of approximately 30 minutes, the nature of the work introduces an engaging element of interactivity.

    Arsham has been honoured with solo exhibitions around the world, including most recently at the HOW Art Museum, Shanghai (2019). The past couple of years have also seen Arsham exhibit at venues including Galerie Ron Mandos, Amsterdam (2019), as well as the Perrotin Gallery in New York (2018) and Tokyo (2018).

    紐約藝術家丹尼爾·阿瑟姆在過去十年的職業生涯一直令人矚目,其樹立的聲名不僅僅侷限於任何一個方向或領域,更是觸及藝術世界的每一端。其創作的發人深省和引人注目之作品中,阿瑟姆策劃了存在於藝術、建築以及表演之間的多方面展現。通過多種媒介審視我們生活中之世界,將他的作品連結在一起的一條線索不可避免的是——當下的事物反映著來自過去的思想,並且注定將被未來所改變。以其實踐中創造「未來的遺物」而著稱,阿瑟姆同時也在探索現實與虛構,以及毀滅與創造之間的對立。

    由玻璃、沙子、一隻鑄模微型相機以及石英製作而成,本限量版拍品既是一件藝術品也是一件可用的計時器。當把沙漏翻轉過來時,其中一件物品就顯現出來,而另一件則被藍色沙子所掩蓋。沙子漏完的時間大約為30分鐘,這件作品的本質在於使觀者參與其中的互動性元素。

    阿瑟姆曾在世界各地舉辦個展,包括最近在上海的昊美術館(2019年)。過去的幾年裡阿瑟姆還曾在包括阿姆斯特丹的Galerie Ron Mandos(2019年),以及在貝浩登畫廊在紐約(2018年)與東京(2018年)的空間展覽。
